How to Paint $1 Flower Pots and Add Color to Your Backyard
Want to see how I added to color to my back yard on a budget??? For only .99 cents for each pot!!! We have a very large back yard and a very small budget, so I had to get creative with adding some color. In less than an hour my daughter and I painted a bunch of these pots (found at the .99 Cents Store) and have them all around our patio to add some “Punch” of color. I bought some craft paint at Michaels. You can usually find it for about $1-$2 and they always have coupons too. We applied two coats of paint and it dried in a couple hours outside. We didn’t tape off as they are going outside and we weren’t going for perfection here. I bought some pretty flowers at Armstrong Nursery, but if I hit it right some days I will find beautiful little flowers at the .99 Cents store too. I just put a rock or two in the bottom for some drainage and then used a good potting compost to add in with the flowers. Now we have two dogs and one is a puppy so if left unattended for too long she will knock them over and do a little digging, so we’re always trying those little tricks to get her to stop digging. If you have any good one’s please leave them in the comments.
